A Recent Review of this guide

A perfect tour, with a perfect guide. Kirk asked for our interests and built the tour around them. Certainly a knowledgeable guy, but also a great story teller; he made the whole day a fun experience. One of the many highlights was being introduced to a rare Hawaiian Monk Seal. A great day visiting beautiful beaches and lookout points along the East and North coasts of Oahu. We highly recommend this guide to anybody wanting to explore the nature and history of the island.
